Robert Kiyosaki, businessman and best selling author of the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad, has taken to Twitter once again to proclaim his bullish position on Bitcoin.
His prognosis? BTC’s price is heading to $75,000 in three years.
How Kiyosaki values each asset
In a May 16 tweet, Kiyosaki states that his fear of a dying economy has led him to purchase more of three assets that he ostensibly considers valuable outside of the traditional financial system: Gold, Silver, and Bitcoin (BTC).
The author’s tweet outlines just how valuable he thinks each asset will be in the coming years. He reveals:
“Bought more gold silver Bitcoin. GOLD [currently] at $1700. Predict $3000 in 1 year. Silver [currently] at $17. Predict $40 in 5 years. Bitcoin [currently] at $9800. Predict $75000 in 3 years.”
By the numbers, this prediction reflects an expected yearly increase of approximately 76%, 19%, and 97% for gold, silver, and Bitcoin respectively. This indicates that, at least by Kiyosaki’s reckoning, Bitcoin has the most favorable profit potential out of the three.
A growing interest in Bitcoin
This isn’t the first time that Robert Kiyosaki has used his platform to expound on the virtues of Bitcoin and the Blockchain. In recent months, the businessman has spoken out on his faith in the future of the tech numerous times.
In an April appearance on Anthony Pompliano’s podcast, Kiyosaki praised Bitcoin, saying:
“The reason I endorse Bitcoin is just for one frickin reason — you’re not part of the system,”
Noting also that “gold and silver are God’s money, and Bitcoin is open-source people’s money.”
